“As the Taliban tighten their grip over Afghanistan, the militant group is setting its sights on a new target for conquest: the internet and the digital infrastructure which, for the past two decades, has allowed many Afghans access to free information.
Now that Taliban officials are taking over the state services and agencies in Kabul, the country’s capital, it’s unclear how the new regime will go about controlling internet access, and whether it will hunt for political dissidents and crack down on freedom of speech and expression online.
The Taliban have long abandoned their initial objections to the internet as a whole. The Islamist group has adopted a tech-savvy social media strategy that it heavily relied on as the U.S. began withdrawing from the country. …
But running a sophisticated social media operation does not mean the Taliban has experience in drawing up a censorship regime. The new regime would have a hard time establishing China-style controls on online information, Chima said, but it can take more targeted actions like cutting internet access in strategic places or mandating internet service providers to impose limits on accessing parts of the internet — mimicking policies by other states in the Gulf, Iran, Myanmar and elsewhere. …”
In other words, the fear is that the Taliban could censor the internet like the ADL has done in this country. They might even block access to parts of it like Pornhub and OnlyFans.
Note: Facebook and YouTube are already censoring the Taliban.
